Interpretive Study of the Verses Relating Misleading to God and Its Contradiction with Human Free Will
Ali Ranjbar, Mohammad Hassan Zamani
Abstract:   (560 Views)
There are two initial and penal types of Divine leading and misleading; Neither of these two types is in conflict with human free will; Because either it may not be related to God or, if it may, it is in such a manner that is in full agreement with human authority. But the primary guidance, which means showing the way to perfection and happiness to man, and the penal guidance, which is the result of man's voluntary use of the means of God's primary guidance, and the penal misleading, which is the result of man's own arbitrary intention and decision, nonetheless, relating these three types to God would not be against human free will. The primary misleading, however, may not be attributed to God. The importance of the issue of divine leading and misleading lies in the fact that by which the well-known doubt of determinism in the field may be answered. Because the appearance of divine misleading and leading is that man has no choice but to go astray and God forces people to the right or wrong path. This research proves that man's guidance and misguidance are at his own free will.
